Summary

A great game, even though it has problems

The Good

Being able to build your own cities in the Sim City Urban Renewal Kit and driving through them.

The graphics are so realistic, I feel as if I'm actually driving.

The game's scenarios are challenging and fun.

You can build your own cars in the car factory(but you can only use models of the games regular cars).

I love how the game is very realistic. You have to fill up at gas stations, repair your car when parts of it are damaged, and even change the tires and engine!

One of my most favorite things about this game is the radio. The commercials are hilarious and the music sounds so good. You can also change the station .

The Bad

There is no horn.

The bugs. I see pedestrians walking funny and backwards, parked cars on top of each other and on parking lot lights, and being able to drive through gas stations, power lines, and trees.

That message that says: "An unrecoverable error has occurred and Streets of Sim City must quit."

The Bottom Line

If you are the type that likes driving and racing games, this game is for you. But expect some bugs.
